It’s WrestleMania season which is the worst time for a wrestler to be dealing with an injury, but it sounds like that’s exactly what Ronda Rousey is going through right now. It was recently reported that Rousey aggravated an injury which sidelined her, and she recently took to Instagram to confirm that she’s dealing with a fractured radius.
Ronda Rousey also noted that doctors are not currently letting her compete, but she plans to return with a vengeance. The former SmackDown Women’s Champion posted the following:
“How do you train with no ACL or cartilage in your right knee as well as a fractured radius?
Focus on what you CAN do – I have some of the most versatile training routines on earth, I need to do PT, build strength, retain flexibility, and train technique across multiple disciplines – sometimes all in a single session.
After over two and a half decades of combat sports training – the smallest misstep could result in surgery.
Thankfully @mizunousa just sent me their new TS-01 trainers specifically designed for stability (while still ultra light so not to aggravate what remains of my knees —- woohoo!) check link in bio to get yours —
2 weeks after my ACL reconstruction (at 16 years old) My mom had me on the floor doing pushups to teach me a lesson: you can sit around and feel sorry for yourself, or get off your mopey ass and train with a vengeance.
It’s thanks to that ACL injury I spent an entire year focusing solely on newaza (ground techniques in judo) and became the best in the world in armbars and transitions (anyone who doubts me is welcome to try me –)
Well, after thousands of dislocations (I thought not tapping out to armbars and tearing ligaments was cool in my teens) my elbow finally fractured simply by slapping the mat in Rockford, Illinois- right before Wrestlemania.
The only thing saving these chicks now are the doctors not letting me compete. Well ladies, they can’t keep me away forever, I’m not moping, vengeance is coming.”
It’s been rumored for months now that Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler would be challenging for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania 39, but it looks like Ronda’s injury has led to WWE changing plans. Stay tuned for more updates on Ronda Rousey’s status as they become available.
